Owners of European vehicles have a passion for performance. They drive their vehicles hard, enjoying handling that depends heavily on good brakes. Unfortunately, good braking performance has often been accompanied by noise, vibration, reduced pad and rotor wear, and unsightly brake dust. Now, thanks to Akebono EURO brake pads, with a ceramic friction formulation specifically designed for European vehicles, owners of these cars can now keep their wheels virtually free from dust and enjoy longer pad and rotor life, while experiencing the quiet, smooth European stopping power they expect.

To provide NVH control (control of noise, vibration, and hardness), scientifically engineered chamfers and slots are included, where applicable. Precision-fit shims are also incorporated into the design to eliminate noise and deliver ultra-quiet braking performance. Each pad contains about 20 raw materials per formulation to handle a broad range of conditions. The innovative Ceramic Technology produces high resistance to fade and virtually eliminate dusting. You will experience more consistent and smooth braking power over a variety of driving conditions, including panic stops. Designed to fit with precision, EURO Ultra-Premium brake pads are remarkably sensitive to every unique wheel architecture. This ensures rotor compatibility resulting in longer rotor life.

Founded in Japan in 1929, Akebono® is a key resource for both OEMs and the automotive aftermarket all around the globe. In the1980's, the company gained the leading position in the brake market in North America. Today it is the number one brake manufacturer in the world. The corporation operates manufacturing plants in Tennessee, Kentucky, and South Carolina. To provide consistent performance for comfort and confident control behind the wheel, every part by Akebono is backed by one of the most comprehensive Research and Development technical centers in the country and driven by customer satisfaction.

Amazing Difference!
These brakes are an amazing solution to a time old problem! I have a 2010 Audi A4 Quattro S-Line and the OEM brake pads are just terrible with brake dust. I would wash my car and 3 days later my rims were completely black again like I never even washed it. This round I only replaced the front brakes and since installation (2/7/2015) I have noticed a drastic difference in brake dust as I can compare the front wheels to my rear wheels and it is like night and day. I feel no difference in braking power and don't feel the "Vibrating" everyone talks about when using ceramic brakes. A great buy for a great price!

Best Brake Pads Ever
I read about these brake pads on a couple of forums for BMW. I needed to replace the front only on my vehicle so I wanted something that would perform well and not give me as much brake dust as the OEM organic pads. These are the best! Almost no brake dust and unbelievable performance. Highly recommended.
